polling this morning from three key swing states that will raise major concerns inside the romney campaign. of likely voters, president obama now leads mitt romney by 10 percentage points in the state of ohio. that's a double digit lead in the state no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president up nine points in florida. that is absolutely a must win state for romney. mr. obama now opening up a 12 point lead in pennsylvania according to this poll. that's a state, though, republicans have all but written off. those numbers echo polling from the "washington post" which gave the president an eight point advantage in ohio but put him up only four points in the state of florida. ohio in particular shaping up as a critical battleground. mitt romney spending his third consecutive day there. president obama will be in the state this morning. today's "new york times" reporting that aides to mitt romney say the republican candidate and paul ryan will campaign together now much more often in the coming weeks. according to the report, the move underscores concerns that mr. romney i

states. >> big news today president obama may be pulling away from governor romney in the key states of ohio and florida. but is that true? we have in-depth analysis from karl rove, dick morris and the governor of ohio, john kasich. >> there is no doubt that the world is in need of a new order and fresh way of thinking. >> bill: mad man of iran insulting just about everybody at the u.n. we decided to turn the tables tonight and let miller loose on ahmadinejad. >> he is the impeerist do you df fuss. >> barack obama what do you think. >> it's all there in black and white. i hope the white part doesn't screw it up. >> our government is wiping its-[bleep] with the constitution. >> bill: new study out of the university of new hampshire celebrities saying dumb political stuff are hurting their careers. juliet huddy on that. caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: i'm birl, thanks for watching us tonight. the status of the presidential race right this moment that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. this is is an important factor t
a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control obama or romney. he will ask a question and keep quiet. that's not a knock on will he leher. any interruptions are deemed inappropriate. the out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of
to federal and state funding. they can't afford those cuts. that's exactly what would happen if a mitt romney became president of the united states. the romney/ryan plan, here's the list, folks. cut pell grants for more than nine million students, eliminate head start programs for two million children, and cut $5 billion in title one funding for low-income and special needs students. good plan? republicans want to cut funding for public education because, you see, they have a different plan. >> the great thing about charter schools is if they fail, you close them. you invoke their charter. i believe that difference is one of the reasons charter schools has been able to improve the quality of education of those students who beat their path to the door. >> really? improve? a study showed charter schools are twice as likely to underperform rather than overperform. but who cares when you can make a buck? we don't want to pay attention to stanford. speaking of money, this is the other reason ryan and romney, see i always put ryan's name first because that's really what the conservatives want. the
four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy question. which candidate is seen as advancing the interest of the middle class? you see the president up by 25 points on that question in florida, by 19 points in ohio. and that is of course what people vote on. because everybody says they're middle class. so this is essentially asking, who's the fellow who cares more about my interests? and with obama up by those considerable double digits, it's very, very difficult for mitt romney. >> puts the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a we
at the state level. the federal government provides funding for special needs unions in america. mitt romney is so confused on this issue he actually made the case for the teachers in chicago today in the interview. >> education is done at the state level. thfederal government provides funding for special needs students. >> it's just that easy, right? one of the main reasons the teachers went on strike for the first time in 25 years was because of resources and the lack of resources in the classroom. it's different throughout the city. ey c't afford to cut to federal and state funding. they can't afford those cuts. that's exact what would happen if a mitt romney became president of the united states. the romney/ryan plan, here's the list, folks. cut pell grants for mo than nine million students, eliminate head start programs for two million children, and cut $5 billion in title one funding for low-income and special needs students. good plan? r iccaon because, you see, they have a different plan. >> g t a cer schools is if they fail, you close them. you invoke their charter. i believe that d
that the romney campaign was sort of keeping an eye on in the hopes of maybe going in there and making that state competitive. that state, the president, has a 12-point advantage, so obviously romney has a lot of catching up to do. i had a chance to just e-mail back and forth very briefly with a senior romney advisor, and they're already talking about debate expectations for next week and kevin, who is a senior romney advisor, described the president as cy young, one of the great all-time pitchers in baseball. you can't really set expectations higher than that for your opponent, suzanne. >> we know that president obama actually won ohio 51-47%. why are they actually thinking that they've got some wiggle room here, that they've got some influence? what do they think they can do in the weeks ahead? >> they're going to hit this economic message as much as possible. we heard mitt romney talking about that earlier this morning. these polls that have come out do show that he still has an advantage over the president when it comes to who it best managed the debt and the deficit, who would cut the defici
. >> governor there is still plenty of time for mr. romney to make inroads in your fair state, but why do you think he's doing so badly? is it because he had done nothing to save the auto industry? is it because he says he doesn't care about half the population of the country? or is it because nobody understands what he stands for outside of tax cuts? >> all of the above, martin. beginning when we found out he had a swiss bank account, investments in the caymen islands -- >> switzer land. >> outsourcer of jobs. he went on and on and on. his wife has two cadillacs, an elevator for his cars in his home. and then he says on videotape that he's writing off 47% of the american people just basically talking in the most disdainful way about good hard working americans. veterans, poor people who are working their hearts out to make a living. >> governor have ii have to -- i'm sorry, i have to interrupt you because mr. romney and mr. ryan are saying it's the president who are into social divisiveness. they are the ones splitting the countries between the have and have nots. the
as the candidates go head to head in a critical state, and we get reports of a big shift in strategy for the romney campaign. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. with less than six weeks to go before election day, some political writers are pointing out a suddenly tougher tone from governor mitt romney. he is on the attack, being more clear, more concise and more forcefully calling out the administration's policies that he is arguing have hurt america. it comes as both candidates hit the key battleground state of ohio today. the president is expected to speak in moments at a campaign event in bowling green, at bowling green state university, and governor romney is going to hold a manufacturing round table. the governor earlier today focused on the economy. >> do we really want four more years with 23 million americans struggling to find a good job? >> no! >> i mean, do we want four more years where half the kids coming out of college can't find work or college-level work? >> no! >> do we want four more years where every single year the take home pay goes down? >> no! >> do we want

[cheers and applause] megyn: well, one of the political writers focused on the romney change today is chris stirewalt, fox news digital politics editor. chris, there is a shift in the romney approach. describe exactly what we're seeing. >> well, what you're seeing is a campaign that had previously been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the ide
. but the romney campaign says their internal polling in those states shows a much tighter race. >> they're going to have to plant the flag in ohio and fight like crazy. >> reporter: but romney's path to victory is shrinking. this week, abc news shifted ohio from the toss-up column to ohio. mitt romney would need to win nearly all of the remaining seven toss-up states to win the white house. and they all went for president obama in 2008. karen travers, abc news, washington. >>> we have the most convincing evidence yet that water once flowed on mars. nasa's rover curiosity, beaming back pictures with pebbles that are rounded off. a fast-moving stream once flowed on the red planet. finding past water is the first step to find out if the environment was able to sustain life. >>> time, now, for weather across the nation. heavy downpours and flooding around boston, new york, philly and d.c. thunderstorms from the ohio valley to memphis and little rock. scattered showers along the gulf coast. and drenching rain in west texas. showers in the rockies. >>> 70s from billings to albuquerque. and in the midd
in swing states is that mitt romney is a wealthy person who is buy and large looking out for the wealthy and dismissive of the poor and middle class. video reinforced that and i would say i would point to an nbc/wall street journal poll, when you mention the middle class and romney ad, nbc wall street journal asked which candidate cares more or is more focused on the middle class. obama had a 19 point lead, 53/34 on that. i don't think mitt romney wins that question even if he wins the election but he can't lose it that badly. >> chris aliz scizilla, and tha karen. thank you for joining us. >> joining me for a closer look into the race, vin weber adviser to the romney campaign and governor ed rendell, a political analyst. welcome to you both. vin, this is a big challenge. you know the numbers, the battleground states better than i do. ohio, ohio, ohio. how do you do it if ohio becomes out of reach? >> we're not going to give up on ohio. it is critical. everybody makes that point and it's a valid point. no question the president has had a few good weeks starting with the democratic conven

8 swing states that will be seeing this obama ad, attacking romney for his derogatory comments about americans who don't pay federal income tax. >> mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 $45,000 a year. they pay social security taxes. state taxes. local taxes, gas sales and property taxes. romney paid just 14% in taxes last year on over $13 million in income. almost all from investments. >> eliot: the romney/ryan team pay not be able to win a majority but after at itrocious call that ended the seahawks packers game, they did find an issue most americans can agree on. >> i gotta start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean give me a break! it is time to get the real refs. >> eliot: of course, the real refs are being locked out by the nfl where ryan was supporting the referee's union. mitt romney was at the education nation forum w
care rig the state. but team romney still thinks they are within the margin of error. they are also hoping that ryan can save the ticket. as for president obama, he is dolling out plenty of money in ohio. this is something we see every four years as presidential candidates pay particular at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and it has the largest loan in the history of the u.s. small business administration. we are back with more bill press live at the break. and as always we are in chat at current.com/billpress. all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and >>you just think there is no low they won't go to. oh, no. if al gore's watching today... jack you're a little boring. boring. boring.

state. and that's the whole idea here, as the president and mitt romney get ready for the debate. paul ryan and vice president joe biden are on the campaign trail. specific new hampshire. the race here is kind of close. the most recent poll shows president obama with a five-point advantage over mitt romney. definitely a very close contest here in new hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mitt romney very well, who was governor of neighboring massachusetts. he owns a vacation home here in new hampshire. spends a lot of time in this state. >> thanks so much. we're going to keep an eye on it. certainly get ready to hear those debates. thanks so much. >>> ann romney has been a pretty constant presence on the campaign trail. now she's opening up about a big concern. >> i think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for the -- his mental well-being. i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what's missing right now in the economy
in ohio yesterday that he got everyone in massachusetts insured when he was that state's governor. romney doesn't discuss his health care law much on the campaign trail because president obama says he used it as the basis for his own federal health care law. romney says he'll repeal what republicans call obama care if he becomes president. >>> the virginia attorney general approved a plan to impose stricter standards on abortion clinics. the state board approved the regulations earlier this month, requiring existing clinics to deal with higher standards. opponents say forcing clinics to comply with costly renovations could put them out of business. the plan now goes to governor bob mcdonnell for further review. >>> a virginia community is pulling together after a family murder-suicide in herndon. friends and family attended a memorial last night. 57-year-old albert peterson shot and killed his wife kathy and their two sons christopher and matthew and then shot himself. it's news other parents and students are taking very hard. >> we have kids that are the same age. i don't want to go thro
? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpening his economic message. they know that they need to do that. they think it's still possible to w
hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mitt romney very well, who was governor of neighboring massachusetts. he owns a vacation home here in new hampshire. spends a lot of time in this state. >> thanks so much. we're going to keep an eye on it. certainly get ready to hear those debates. thanks so much. >>> ann romney has been a pretty constant presence on the campaign trail. now she's opening up about a big concern. >> i think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for the -- his mental well-being. i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what's missing right now in the economy, peeies that are missing to get this jump started. i think for me it would be the emotional part of it. >> by the way, mitt romney is 65 years old. he would be the second-oldest president in the past 150 years. >>> a consultant for congressman todd akin is comparing him to cult leader david koresh from the waco, texas, incident. this week akin refuse
making campaign stops in pennsylvania today, a state that barack obama carried in 2008 and the romney camp is hoping to make head way there. he attends a fundraiser in the next hour in philadelphia and then he will head to nearby wayne pennsylvania for a campaign rally at the valley forge military academy. after that romney will travel to boston where he will join paul ryan for another round of fundraising. >>> the polls give a sense of which way people are voting but it is social media that will indicate which candidate they're really talking about and cnn has new data provided exclusively by fb auto. it says people are mentioning mitt romney more on facebook in 41 of the 50 states. you see them in red there. of course that can be misleading. president obama is leading in nine states. those are the ones in blue. those are all considered swing states by cnn. romney's staff said he is focusing on using social media to drum up support. i am sure the other side says that, too. it is not just facebook. youtube, yahoo! even xbox planning to get in on the political action. allison is follow
mitt romney, the next president of the united states, ladies and gentleman, mitt romney. (applause). >> that is quote a guy, isn't it? that is paul ryan. wait, wait, wait, romney-ryan. romney-ryan. romney-ryan. there we go. that is right. thank you senator rand paul for being here. problem portman, he has campaigned for me all over the cup. do you know what he does on weekends? do you know what he does? he plays president obama. can you believe that? he plays president obama. he plays him well, too. i hate to tell you. we get a chance to debate one another after the hour and a half is over. i want to kick him out of the room he is so good. but he doesn't convince me, when he finishes he said, you beat me again. you beat me again. he likes my arguments. he is a better debater but he likes my arguments better. he knows they are right. where is lee greenwood? lee, i don't know where he is, but i heard him, there he is. right there. proud to be an america. thank you, sir. thank you one more time. this guy sang it right. he said it right. "i'm proud to be an american." i'm proud to be w
important state. history tells us you have to win it. if you don't, you cannot win. listen in to mitt romney and paul ryan together. >> get people back did work. gas. coal. it is here. it is ours. on day one, you know what he will do? he will say yes to the keystone xl pipeline to get the pill coming to our country. number two, in our states, in our midwestern manufacturing states, we have lots a lot of work. a lost petroleum in the prime of their lives, in their 40's and 50's, they are in between. delphi is a great example. those people need skills they need to get back on track and get to a career of the 21st century so the american dream can be placed in their reap. we need kills. we need to fix our schools and honor the parents and children and not the special interests standing in the way of the educational reforms. we need trade that works for america so we can make more things in america and sell them overseas. mitt will get more indo that. there is one thing the four of us have talked about, we have worked on, we have fought for. it is a really simple idea. we can't keep spending mon
